Continued: Koivu is seeing plenty of playing time

By the way, Boogaard's mother, Joanne, told him that Koivu's mother, Tuire, covered her eyes during the three fights Sunday.

"She hated them," Boogaard said, laughing.

Etc.

• Wild rookie forward James Sheppard entered Tuesday averaging only 8 minutes, 32 seconds a game, but Lemaire is subtly throwing him the confidence bone. With less than two minutes left Sunday against the Ducks, Lemaire threw Sheppard on the ice during a power play. "We had a power play, we were leading, things were OK, so I wanted to give him a little more pressure so he can start to feel it," Lemaire said.

• Petteri Nummelin, 34, will definitely be in the defensemen lineup rotation. "Nummelin, at the start of [last] season was one of our best defensemen," Lemaire said. "He got tired playing too much. That was a mistake we made. Playing in Europe, I don't know how much he played, but here, with the travel and he was playing 28 minutes, he ran out of gas."

• The start time to Sunday's game against Colorado at Xcel Energy Center has been moved from 5 to 6 p.m. Also, because of a conflict with Game 4 of the World Series, the Wild-Avalanche game in Denver on Oct. 28 has been moved to 2 p.m.

• After Tuesday's game, the Wild checked into a Los Angeles Airport hotel (its fifth hotel in five nights) for one final mother-son get-together. The Wild will fly back to Minnesota this morning before hitting the road again Friday for Saturday night's game at St. Louis.
